Squid (No, I'm not that mean.....it's her nickname....really!) participated in Willie Wilson's TAG production of Grease!
That's right greasers......Danny, Rizzo, Kenickie, Sally, Frenchy & Marty were back on stage live last night at the AMBS theatre.
Who did Squid play....well Marty Maraschino of course!
I have to say that I knew she loved to act, but after last night, I will never say that half heartedly. That girl was so animated and......just wow..... fantastic kiddo!
yes.....I'm a proud mama...can't help it!
As I watched her perform, I was completely mesmerized. How in the world did she snap her head with that sassy attitude and not get whiplash? I think I gave her too much chocolate on Easter....
We were also very excited for her because she managed to land a solo called Freddie My Love (very cute song - I believe it's from the Broadway version of Grease). Needless to say, she practiced every single day and knew the song inside and out. So, when she got ready to sing on stage.....we all held our breath. She was great. Although she did get her lines mixed up a little, she kept singing and ended perfectly with a beautiful note. Her poor brother was so nervous for her, he couldn't even watch....in fact he wanted to leave during her solo but my husband wouldn't let him.
I have to say that ALL the actors and I mean it....ALL of them did an amazing job. They all knew their lines....they sang beautifully and the dance moves were perfect! Watch out Broadway....we've got some up and coming stars!!
I'm a total Grease lover and I was bopping in my chair singing along.....it was a wonderful production.
